Fans who will be seeing the Red Hot Chili Peppers on their springtime North American tour should make sure to get to the venue early. The band announced on Thursday that in addition to Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue and Jack Irons joining them as opening acts, that Babymetal, Irontom, and Deerhoof will also be coming along for various dates in the second half of the tour.

Their North American tour kicks off tonight (January 5) in San Antonio, TX, and for the first thirty dates RHCP will be joined by the previously announced openers in Trombone Shorty, Orleans Avenue, and Jack Irons. Babymetal, who toured with the Chili Peppers throughout the UK in 2016 will join in for ten dates starting April 12 and running through April 29. After a week off, Irontom will come on board for eleven dates throughout most of May, then Deerhoof will help close out the North American run with seven dates in June and ending on July 1.

The Chili Peppers have been touring since midway through last year following the release of The Getaway. While the band hasn’t been included on any major U.S. festival lineups as of yet, their schedule is open for the weekend of Bonnaroo, which they’ve been rumored to headline.
